May 11, 2017 – Oriole Blackbird (Gymnomystax mexicanus)

These New World blackbirds are found in northern parts of South America. Their diet consists of a wide variety of insects and arthropods, along with small frogs, and fruit. They are often found foraging in pairs or small groups. Probably monogamous, pairs build cup-shaped nests from dry grasses and weeds. Females incubate the eggs alone, but both parents feed the chicks.
